Recommended Mobile Otome Routes

Joey-Tribiani-How-You-Doin

Hello, hello! It’s been a while since I last posted, huh? I’ve been quite busy with my finals but, luckily, I’m done with them so I’m more free now!! Well, truth is I also didn’t know what I should post next; this blog’s main focus is about otome AND mysteries but I haven’t posted any mystery-related content yet. I definitely will, though, it’s a promise!!

Ok, putting that aside, I made a post before about the worst mobile otome routes I’ve ever played, right? So, this time, I wanted to make a post about the ones I actually enjoyed!! I won’t really make a top 10 or anything; this’ll be more of a recommendation post but I may do a top 10 or top 5 or top something someday 😛 Ahem! By the way, I won’t talk about mobile games that are actually brought from PSP (like Demon’s Bond or Eternal Vows) since they’re not really mobile games. Also won’t be talking about Mystic Messenger, despite it actually BEING a mobile game because that one is a whole new category in itself. It doesn’t have the quality you can expect from a mobile otome game, it’s much much better so I don’t think it’s fair to put it on this list; I’ll just make a full review on Mystic Messenger after I finish it. I’ll also structure this post by game and tell you which routes I recommend the most from them (I hope this makes sense 😆 ). As for East Tower, it’s also a mobile game but I’ll cover it on a full review too since I want to ramble about a lot of good things the game has to offer yet sometimes is ignored for the not so great art. In the case of Voltage games, I might add things about their sequels and such but this will be mostly about the main routes.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these recommendations ♡ And tell me what you think, I’d love to read your comments! Also, remember these recommendations are my personal opinion so that doesn’t mean everyone has to agree with me 😛 . This post has mild spoilers so it should be alright to read 🙂 But WARNING, it’s a bit long 😆 Let’s start!

Otome game review: Re: Alistair++

re_alistair_rlease_by_tooaya

I first played Re: Alistair++ a few years ago, when I still didn’t know many otome games. Being one of my earlier ones, it holds a special place in my heart (just as Winter in Fairbrook, which I’ll probably write about soon). After so long, I decided to replay it :-).

The story revolves around Merui, an impulsive high school girl who loves video games and plays one called Rivenwell Online. One day, as she’s about to beat a boss and get a cool item, a guy called Alistair barges in and defeates it instead. Merui wants her item back but Alistair has other ideas. After finding out he goes to the same school, but not being certain of who he is, Alistair challenges her to discover his real identity. If she wins, she’ll get her item back. If she loses, she’ll have to give him all of her gold for a whole month. There are 3 guys besides her who were also using the internet during lunch break (before it suddenly shut down). Can Merui figure out who this Alistair is, before the time runs out, and get revenge?

Note: This review contains spoilers so read at your own risk. If you want to avoid them, though, just jump to “conclusive thoughts”.

A little tour through Pacthesis’ games

So, after some pondering of what should my first post be about, I decided to dedicate it to the wonderful world of Pacthesis’ games. For those who don’t know who she is, Pacthesis (aka Amy) is the creator of several flash sim dates in Deviantart (most of them made when she was in High School!). But right now, understandably, she is busy with life and has been on a hiatus for almost two years. If she ever comes back and starts making games commercially, my wallet and I will be ready to buy her stuff, since it’s thanks to her that I got into otome games in the first place. Pacthesis’ games are a perfect example of how art can improve over time and how, to my mind, STORY REIGNS ABOVE ALL.

Note: This review contains very mild spoilers but if you still want to avoid them just jump to “conclusive thoughts”.
